The cafe itself is tiny, or cozy, and very cute with different art on the wall every time I go there. There is also a relaxing back patio which i believe is heated. You order at the counter, pay, get your number and then your food is brought to you. there is a wide selection of salads, crepes and of course FRENCH FRIES!!!
Favorite Dish: The French Fries (duh!) with curry ketsup. Add a Stell Artois to the mix and I'm in heaven. Carb heaven, but still heaven.
Small Belgian place - nice cozy outdoor seating in back. Fries are served in a paper cone and placed in a tall glass. There is a variety of dipping sauces. Good selection of beer. I also ordered a crepe, but I wasn't impressed. I think with other ingredients it could have been good. I tried the crepe with gorgonzola, roasted peppers, grilled eggplant, and red onion. For me the gorgonzola was too overpowering and the eggplant didn't cut it. The eggplant may have been burnt - in any event I couldn't chew parts of it. It was like eating paper. The crepe itself was fine. Maybe they were having an off-day...
Favorite Dish: The fries seem to be the main attraction here.
If you are European you'll like this place as it feels like home. Let's see... they have Belgian fries, mayo dips, crepes, Orangina, Stella Artois Leffe Chimay and Hoegaarden on tap, the place is small with an outdoor patio where you can smoke and they play good music (last time I went there they were playing Gotan Project). If it's sunny outside it's perfect but even if it's not I like eating outisde in the patio. They have another restaurant at Ghirardelli Square but I like the Hayes location more. A bit crowded (because of people like me who tell other people about it). Inexpensive by San Francisco standards.
The crepes are named after famous painters/sculptors. I felt proud to see Brancusi being one of them :-)
Favorite Dish: I usually get the Brancusi crepe (out of patriotism), big fries with/without garlic, mayo dips (you get two dips per order of fries) and an Oragina or a Hoegaarden beer on tap.
frjtz is an unusual little spot in many ways.
First off, it's an affordable stop on a street lined with trendy boutiques that were way out of our price league for the most part.
Second, how many places do you know in the US where you can get Belgian fries with at least a dozen choices of condiment? And then wash it down with a glass of Belgian beer?
Third, it's a hangout for DJs and other artists, which gives it a really laid-back feel, with great, relaxed music on the sound system, and sofas and cosy ledges to get comfortable in (as well as a nice area out the back if the weather is good).
Favorite Dish: They do a variety of crepes, salads and sandwiches here, in many exotic-sounding combinations, but most people come in and share a large order of their delicious tangy fries, and a couple of pots of one or other of the ketchups and mayonnaises on offer. As bizarre as it sounds, the kalamata olive ketchup was fabulous! It was great to get a glass of cold Hoegaarden on tap, too.
Main menu consist of fries w/ exotic dipping sauces and crepes.
Favorite Dish: Belgian fries with the dipping sauces - i.e Wasabi Mayo, Spicy Ketchup or some other exotic combination.
The crepes are good too, but I'm not a fan of them in generally even the ones I've tried in Paris.
